Luston Group Parish News Items
Events not to be missed!
With the Queen’s Jubilee virtually upon us, there is a lot going on!
It is World War 2 weekend up at Berrington Hall, where you can learn all about the interesting and varied part which Berrington played in the Second World War, and they are hoping to have a Spitfire Flypast over the Hall at about 11:50 am on Saturday. On Sunday there is the ‘Big Lunch Community Picnic‘ for the whole community, and every household in the Parish should have received an invitation. If you are a National Trust member though, please do show your membership card on arrival, as that will benefit the Hall itself.
I expect a lot of you will be holding private Jubilee parties on Monday, but there should be plenty going on in front of the Grange in Leominster on that day, and Hampton Court is also open all week with their Jubilee Garden Festival. A Jubilee Supper & Dance will be held at Hill Farm, Eyton on Monday evening, and more details of this event can be found on the 'What's On' page.
Later in the month, on Sunday and Monday 17th & 18th June the gardens of both 2 Upper Court and 3 Upper Court in Luston, plus “The Nest” at Moreton Eye, will open to the public for the National Garden Scheme. In addition “The Marsh” and “The Mill” at Eyton” will be open later, on 24th June. Teas and plant sales are available on all days, and a visit to these venues is a must for all garden lovers. All profits are for caring charities.
For anyone who is ‘at home’ during the week, and would like to share some time with friends and neighbours, the community Lunch at Cawley Hall, organised by Sue Evans and Cherry Griffiths, on Wednesday 20th June will have a Jubilee theme. The menu is the one which the Queen herself enjoyed 60 years ago, immediately after her Coronation, and more details about our special lunch can be found here. Definitely an occasion not to be missed!
Moving into July, as previously reported, it has now been confirmed that the Queen will be visiting Hereford on Wednesday 11th July, when a memorable ‘Diamond Day’ is being held on King George V Playing Field. Details of this event can be read here, where you will also find a link to the latest news.
Let’s hope that the weather will be kind to all the above events which are being held outdoors, and that everyone enjoys themselves.
